Perhaps I could help? I was sitting by the window; I closed my eyes and visualized the baby calm and sleeping. I forward with both hands and in my mind’s eye, laid them gently on the baby’s ankles. It was my intention to do cranial sacral therapy to release the stress and calm the baby. Imagining a nickels worth of pressure I gently manipulated the skin on the ankles to release stress. Within minutes the baby stopped crying. When we were offered drinks I took one. In doing so, I lost contact with the baby’s ankles and the crying started again. John quickly took my drink and said he would take care of it! Again, quiet!
I have done this dozen’s of times on planes and with one exception, it worked!
